About this property

  • Dean Hill House was significantly extended in 1991 to become a well-proportioned family home of just over 3,200sq ft. The house is located on the top of a chalk ridge landmark and has some of the finest views in the county. The National Trust, Pepperbox Hill is a short walk away and supports a rich and diverse array of rare species of orchids, juniper and yew woodland.

    Entering through the front door you are welcomed by an elegant hallway leading to the principal rooms, with an oak staircase to the first floor. The dual aspect dining room has a fireplace and a bay window with sweeping views over Bentley Wood. The substantial drawing room is 25' long and has a fireplace, two sets of French doors and a bay window, with far reaching views over the rural countryside and beyond.
    The kitchen is well-appointed, with space for a breakfast table and the four-door oil-fired Aga, which is a focal point. There are plenty of cupboards and a pantry for storage. There is an integrated dishwasher, space for an American style fridge/freezer and an electric hob and oven for the summer months. The dual aspect sitting room is off the kitchen, offering further entertainment space with door out to the garden, and shares the same views over Bentley Wood and to the south, the Isle of Wight.

    From the landing upstairs, the main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom, with separate enclosed shower. The second bedroom has an en suite bathroom with ‘Jack and Jill' access. There are two further double bedrooms, one of which has its own en suite bathroom. A smaller fifth bedroom is currently used as a dressing room and could also be used as a nursery.

    The oak framed annex was built in 2004 by the current owners and is finished with a classic décor interior. There is a sitting room, currently used as a games room, with a double bedroom and en suite bathroom above. The annex is heated by electricity and an electric hot water cylinder. Connected by a covered loggia is a store/utility room, with a two bay carport providing covered parking.

    Approached off Ashmore Lane, the sweeping gravel drive leads to the front of the house with the carport just off. The house is surrounded by lawn and specimen trees, with outstanding views both to the north and the south on either side of the chalk escarpment. The garden is beautifully maintained and there are several herbaceous borders around the terrace which provide an abundance of colour in the summer months. The property further benefits from a hard tennis court.
